We invite you to linger and read about laughing dogs and other secrets of our best friends.
What is a dog laugh?
A dog laugh is a forced breathy exhalation through the mouth. Dogs produce this sound during play. This breathy exhalation, dog-laughter, appears to be a vocalization exclusive to play encounters and friendly encounters with other dogs and people. This vocalization is a signal to reinforce play, a signal to initiate of play, and to demonstrate good intentions.
What does a dog laugh sound like?
The forced breathy exhalation sounds very much like a human laugh with the vocal vowel removed. For example, if you laughed, Hah, hah, hah - then simply remove the "ah" with the same amount of forced air being released.
For a full recording, we are offering a CD for purchase. The full recording is 45 minutes of digitally recorded dog laughter and other play sounds.
